Charters have made the decision not to offer their transition day scheduled for June 30th given the current advice from the government regarding Covid-19.
They have created a dedicated New Year 7 Information page on their website (link here), where they have provided a range of details on their alternative arrangements.
They have also created a dedicated email address for any parental questions regarding transition (email@example.com).
With regards to transition in our school, this is usually led by Charters and therefore this year it will not be happening in the same format as previous years.
In-school transition PSHE lessons will start the week commencing 15th June 2020 providing work for children about the general transition from a primary to secondary setting. The information we are aware of about Charters will be shared with children, they will have the opportunity to ask questions about the school and these will be answered to the best of our ability.
Any questions that cannot be answered by us can be directed to the dedicated transition email address provided by Charters.
In the week commencing June 22nd when the arrangements for all year groups to return to school begin, Year 6 will be in school at the same time from 9am-1pm. They will be in two pods, in two separate classrooms and with a different adult taking each pod. The majority of work completed during this time in school will be focused on transition work.
For those children not returning to school, any transition resources used in school will be displayed here for reference.
Home learning will continue for Year 6 pupils in the same way for the remainder of the school week - English, Maths, Science and other foundation subjects. At this point in the academic year, Year 6 would usually be focused for the majority of the day on completing a range of extra-curricular activities, such as preparing for an end of year production and leavers service, completing transition visits to secondary schools and taking part in leavers activities. Sadly, this cannot happen this year in the same way so the focus within school for the last four weeks of the academic year will be on the transition from primary to secondary school where this will be led by an adult.
